Drain cleaning exercise in preparation for hurricane season delayed
- Categorized in: Mello FM News
Local Government Minister Noel Arscott says the late tabling of the 2012/2013 budget is hampering the start of island wide drain cleaning in preparation for the Hurricane Season which begins in less than a month.
He further said the work is yet to begin as the required funding is not yet in place.
The Estimates of Expenditure will be tabled in Parliament next Thursday and Mr. Arscott says it's not yet known how much money will be allocated for drain cleaning.
